Month In Review – July & Goals For August 2010

I love reading this mother’s blog. I got to know her blog when I google for Homeschool materials and I totally love the way she raise her only daughter, Anna.

As a working mother, I think she is absolutely awesome. Despite her busy working schedule, she keeps her blog timely and interesting. Love her commitment in making her blog alive.

Beside daily entries, she does, weekly review of what her child is learning, book review of what her child is reading weekly. She also does monthly review for herself too. I am going to copy her way of recording in my site.

Personally I feel blogging is very personal. You know there are people out there reading as the blog stats increase. So most people will think what to write and what will interest reader.

As for me, I usually keep track of what Yvette is doing and add on some of my encounter. I also blog about family event which I think it is worth while to do so. And I took tons of photo every day. It will be a waste if I just keep them in my lappy’s hard disk and not publish here to share with my extended family members & friends. Or maybe you?

It might bored readers.

But this is my playground, and I feel blogging is an insurance. When one day I will become senile, and will need this blog for reference, seriously!
